River Description

A very nice 2.5 to 3.5 hour run with a less than 30-minute (one way) shuttle. This creek holds water well. (See above for levels.)
About 1/2 way into the run look for the XX's on a tree to help signal you of a mandatory portage.
There are many drops and rapids that are unique. The river has a nice slot-and-drop mixed with more open rapids character. There a couple of dead-end slots so don't be in a big hurry. I could describe the harder drops in detail, but that would take the fun out of it.
